Volunteer Information


Do you want to have fun? Are you ready to have an experience with the Kansas City running community? We want you!! Each year, over 1,000 dedicated volunteers join the Hospital Hill Run Race Crew to help make Kansas City’s oldest running event a huge success! Our volunteers, comprised of community groups, teams, schools and generous individuals, work hard to provide incredible support and dedication to create the best race weekend experience and atmosphere for our participants and fans! Our continued success would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers.

Individuals and groups are needed to fill various roles throughout race week. Our volunteers help to set up the Health & Fitness Expo, hand out water on the course, and present the finishers with their medals as they cross the finish line. We have a role to match everyone’s preference & comfort!

To fully leverage our volunteers, we have created Captain roles for all of our volunteer areas. These captains help coordinate the set of volunteers for the specified day and time and provide direction, where needed. We recognize that we will have both returning and new volunteers; therefore, we want to leverage the experience of returning volunteers to help make that initial experience for “newbies” the best it can be!

All of our fabulous volunteers will receive a Hospital Hill Run Race Crew t-shirt and a fulfilling and fun volunteer experience. Those working one of the races, Friday evening and/or Saturday morning, are also eligible to attend the post-race party and will receive, first hand, the gratitude of thousands of athletes. Groups volunteering together can also wear their own shirts to show their support for our events!

Volunteer registration for the 2017 Hospital Hill Run COMING SOON!
